Keynote Speaker: Jennifer Doyle (University of California, Riverside)
This session welcomes papers that explore any aspect of American Literature before 1865, including American Renaissance, Colonial, and Puritan literature. While we are open to papers dealing with a variety of topics and authors during this time period, we are particularly interested in papers that engage with the special conference theme of "Acting, Roles, Stages." As such, papers dealing with issues such as acting as art and metaphor, theories of role play and theatricality, and conceptions of the world stage and the public audience in American Literature prior to 1865 are particularly welcome. If your paper does not tap into these specific themes but deals with literary topics relevant to this era, you are still more than welcome to submit a proposal.
